France’s Marine Le Pen Acquitted of Hate Speech Charges for Posting Photos of Daesh Atrocities

The National Rally leader and 2022 presidential candidate was charged with hate speech after posting photos of murders carried out by jihadists back in 2015.

French politician Marine Le Pen was acquitted by a court on Tuesday. She was accused of breaking hate speech laws after she posted photos of Daesh* terrorists killing people back in 2015, while slamming comparisons between her party (then known as the National Front) and the notorious jihadist group in French media.

“This is what Daesh is”, she wrote under the photos, responding to journalist Jean-Jacques Bourdin, who made such a comparison.
